Debt Collector Harassment or Abuse
Not being able to pay a debt can be a frustrating, upsetting and even humiliating problem. It can have a devastating impact on all aspects of a person’s life. When a debt collector uses illegal, unfair, abusive, or harassing methods of debt collection, it magnifies the problem dramatically. Some debt collectors will do whatever it takes to collect a debt, even if that means breaking the law. This conduct is just plain wrong, and it must be stopped.
Protection From Debt Collector Harassment
Many consumers do not understand that there are both state and federal laws that protect them by regulating debt collectors, placing restrictions on what debt collectors can and cannot do while collecting a debt, and even forcing a debt collector to pay a penalty of up to $1,000 to a consumer should a debt collector break these laws.
